Bittersweet Goodbye - - Jackson, MS

Bittersweet Goodbye

Happy Friday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

It's 72 degrees this morning and it should be a beautiful, summer-like Mississippi day. Meteorologist Paul Williams will let us know what the weather will be like through our Memorial Day holiday weekend in his First Alert Forecast.  No, easy way to break the news but this will be Paul's last day with us on the WLBT AM Report. Be there to help us say goodbye to Paul and find out what big plans he has for the future.

In our Election 2013 coverage, Jackson democratic mayoral candidate Chokwe Lumumba addresses his past role in a separatist movement in Mississippi and how his views on race in politics has changed.

Plus, Mississippi Highway Patrol will be out in full force this holiday weekend and Jessica Bowman will let us know what drivers need to be aware of in live reports.

And, the James Hutto trial continues today as does the awkward court demeanor of the man accused of killing an 81 year old Clinton woman.

All those stories and much more are headed your way at the top of the hour.

Almost forgot....Julie Levanway will be in the kitchen this morning whipping up something special for Paul and his last Fresh From the Flame.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and for more Mississippi News Now look us up on Fox 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great Friday and a great Memorial Day!
